DCRC-CC, Joint AAR/DCRC PhD scholar (Completed)


Trish Shuter was received a three year Joint Alzheimer’s Australia Research Limited (AAR) and the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre (DCRC) Scholarship in Social Research and Dementia to undertake a PhD.
Her thesis examined potential predictors of, and protective factors for, complicated grief and its correlation with health outcomes in primary family caregivers of people with dementia. Trish made the transition from the education sector to the health sector via aged care and more specifically dementia care, with a focus on the social and lifestyle aspect.
She has completed a Master of Applied Science (Health Promotion) and Master of Research in Public Health. She has also worked on a project examining the psychosocial aspect of community care models of leg ulcer management in the aged population. Trish has published and been involved in several publications related to areas in which she has worked and studied.
